The oven door does not close completely. It stays open about 1/2 inch. It seems like something is stopping it from closing. Checked areas around the door for obstructions. All clear. Could the hinges be the problem? If so, do I need to order 2 of the p/n?
Answer Dennis, Yes, the hinges could be the issue, and you'd want to replace both hinges 8053808 at the same time. You also need to check the oven front frame in the area of the hinge receptacles, to see if there is damage, if the area is bowed or bent out towards you, then there is no repair, and replacing the hinges will not solve the issue. And use a "straight edge" and check to make sure the oven door itself is not bent out at the top.
I need to purchase this item but don't see installation instuctions for the Door Hinge AP3038786, How can I get this?
Answer Hello Lou. You will need to remove the door from the oven. Then disassemble the door, to gian access to the hinge assembly. Hope this helps.
